NEW: Worcester Mayor Announces School Construction Projects
Friday, June 01, 2012
“I am thrilled to hear our proposal for a new Nelson Place Elementary School along with other projects has advanced to the next level,” the Mayor said in his release. “I hope the MSBA will take into consideration all aspects of our proposal and move forward to approve construction.”
The proposed plans include projects at 5 other Worcester Schools: Chandler Magnet, Dr. James A. Caradonio New Citizens Center, Jacob Hiatt Magnet, Lake View and May Street. The meeting will take place on Wednesday June 6th in Boston.
“Investing in our school infrastructure is a top priority for our city,” Petty said.
This confirmation comes right in the middle of the City Council’s vote on the school budget hearing, which will be finalized at their next meeting on Tuesday. Council is under pressure to push funding for education after a past of providing near bottom figures.
“We must continue to ensure our students have the most modern facilities in which to continue their education,” he said. “I look forward to working with the City Manager Michael V. O’Brien and his team to build upon the strong relationship we have with the MSBA as we move forward.”
